    Fatal fire in Jordan / Greenpeace's waste-charging trial

    On Friday's Backchat, we're talking about fire safety -- after a blaze in Jordan left five people dead and more than 40 injured on Wednesday.

    Authorities have yet to confirm the cause of the tragedy, but a Fire Services Department spokesperson told RTHK earlier that some of the fire doors were broken, which may have led to heavy smoke in one of the staircases.
    According to a Buildings Department statement, the 60-year-old building had earlier been requested to carry out repair works, which includes the replacement of fire doors, and the provision of protected lobbies for the escape staircase. But the requests have not yet been met.
    How fire compliant are our buildings? What more can be done to improve fire safety?
    After 9:45, we find out more about a green group's waste- charging trial.

    Advance healthcare directives / “Robot everywhere” exhibition

    主持人:Jim Gould and Mike Rowse

    On Monday's Backchat we’re talking about proposals to establish a legal framework for people to make advance instructions on medical treatment in end-of-life situations.

    The Hospital Authority allows patients to submit advanced medical directives, or AMDs, in written form, and an increasing number have been doing so in recent years. But as there is no current legislation on the practice, there's concern that both individuals and medical personnel could face legal and practical challenges.

    A bill to give greater legal force to such directives was gazetted on Friday and is due for its first reading in the Legislative Council on December 6. And in future, patients may also be able to make advance instructions in digital form.

    After 9:45, we find out more about a robot exhibition at the Hong Kong Science and Technology Park, with enterprises in the business of developing the smart city concept, and sustainable innovation technologies, showcasing the latest robo-tech in the market.
